Newcastle United are looking to sign Ivan Toney as the new striker to bolster their attack. But, as per Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal and Chelsea want him too.

Even with Callum Wilson and Alexander Isak, at times, it feels that Magpies are a bit short up front. There is no doubt that Wilson and Isak are world-class strikers and Newcastle are not short of scoring prowess. They hammered Sheffield United 8-0 at Bramall Lane. However, Eddie Howe is constantly looking to bolster his team with new signings. One of the major areas where Eddie Howe wants reinforcement is the striker. And, the Newcastle boss is a huge admirer of the Brentford striker Ivan Toney. However, Manchester United were also interested in signing him as Erik ten Hag likes the players. Now, as per recent reports, both Arsenal and Chelsea have shown interest in signing Ivan Toney.

Ivan Toney changes agent to get a move amid interests from Arsenal and Chelsea

Perhaps one of the most popular and credible transfer journalists, Fabrizio Romano recently reported that Ivan Toney has changed his agent because he wants to try something new away from Brentford. This is something Newcastle fans would be delighted to know.

However, Romano also said that both Arsenal and Chelsea could make a move for the striker in the January transfer window leaving behind Newcastle and Man United.  Now, the Magpies could make a move for a striker in the upcoming January transfer window.

Still, whether they would go for Toney or not amid interest from Arsenal and Chelsea is something that fans would need to see. There is no doubt that Toney will be a great addition for the Magpies and under a manager like Eddie Howe, his game will flourish.
